This very rare, early practical grimoire is one of the most important books on ceremonial magic. No need to say most of the copies of such books of magick were burned or destroyed, and are of the utmost rarity. This early edition is of the greatest value, although it might probably have been be printed later in the 18th century. All modern editions are based on later counterfeit editions..
